A hand-lacquered dial paying tribute to the craftsmanship and magical beauty of Kanazawa
Kanazawa is a region of Northern Japan where Lacquer artist Isshu Tamura produces works using techniques unique to Kanazawa Urushi lacquerware. With this new watch, Mr. Tamura expresses the beauty of summer in the Hokuriku region. The green Urushi dial evokes a moss garden and the watch hands in gold capture the sunlight falling through the trees. Equipped with Caliber 6R24, the watch’s date, day of the week, and power reserve hands move like a Japanese fan, each day revealing a different and unique expression.
Each dial is finished using an innovative manufacturing method that directly combines metal with Urushi and traditional craftwork techniques that produce a smooth surface.
As Urushi continues to harden without solidifying, it does not deteriorate and its durability continues to increase with time. The Urushi applied to the dial must have a beautiful luster, yet be thick enough not to interfere with the movement of the hands, requiring a high level of skill to produce.
The Urushi dial crafted by Mr. Tamura, is an expression of his aesthetic sense and is a fusion of traditional craftwork techniques handed down from generation to generation with modern manufacturing technology.
